Pulp Pavilion (2015 R+D First Award)
For Los Angeles design firm Ball-Nogues Studio, one of the world's largest music festivals was ideal for debuting a building material it had been developing for years: recycled-paper pulp. Ball-Nogues designed a pavilion made of seven 20-foot-tall woven “trees” that joined together in a latticed roof.
